As a complete newbie to computer programming, what would be a good starting language to learn with the intention to getting a job when (or should that be 'if'?) I'm good enough?
Also, how would I go about getting industry experience as even junior positions like people to have some experience?

Depends in which field you would want a Job. C++ is taught as the basics. Then again PHP is good for some Web Based back end programing and such. Otherwise iOS and Android Development would be a good field :)
Search some classifieds and start job searching. Target a smaller company, they usually pay less, but for less, newbies are willing to work to build up experience. While the professionals don't settle for less.

Java or Python maybe.
I thought providing my own "it depends" answer, but considering that the original post is from August I think it would be better to ask "so, what did you decide?"

ok i think C++ is the easy programming language, u can learn it very fast. Java or PHP is good but it base on C++

I was going to say that. C++ is a good place to start. Java can be a huge pain once you get more into it. It can take a very long time to get it perfectly. Granted that goes for all coding but moreso for Java. In my experience anyway.

My university teaches Java as a base and then has C classes as you move further up. But as people said it really depends on what you're doing. My personal favorite is assembly (probably because I'm an EE).
